Dead & Company closed their second weekend at Las Vegas’ Sphere last night. A rare Sunday show during Dead & Company’s extended run at the Sphere, due to the gigs falling over Memorial Day weekend, the ensemble opened things up with the traditional, biblically loaded “Samson and Delilah,” a tune the Grateful Dead frequently played on Sundays. From there, Dead & Company moved into an unexpectedly placed “Franklin’s Tower.” The first set also included the Dead & Company’s first versions of “Friend of the Devil” and “Ramble on Rose” at the Sphere.

The group’s second set kicked off with the classic run from “Scarlet Begonias” into “Fire on the Mountain.” Then, Dead & Company launched into their first Sphere version of the Dead-adopted Bob Dylan anthem, “All Along the Watchtower.” After that, the musicians began an extended, improvisational sequence that commenced with “Terrapin Station” and then segued into “Drums,” “Space” and their first “Wharf Rat” of the Sphere residency. Visually enhanced versions of “Cold Rain and Snow,” “U.S. Blues” and “Morning Dew” rounded out the second set and, after the archival Dead news broadcast that serves as an encore break for Dead & Company’s Sphere run, the band concluded the night with “Not Fade Away.”

Dead & Company will return to the Sphere on Thursday.
